December 17, 2015 – The Schriever Wargame 2015 concluded at Schriever Air Force Base today. Set in the year 2025, Schriever Wargame 2015 explored critical space issues in depth.

The objectives of the Wargame centered on:

  • Identifying ways to increase the resilience of space that include our Intelligence Community, civil, commercial, and Allied partners;

  • Exploring how to provide optimized effects to the warfighter in support of coalition operations; and
